Ignoring Wike poses a great danger for PDP, says Ortom


Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has said that ignoring the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, and his team poses a great danger for the party.

The governor disclosed this during the party stakeholders meeting held at the new banquet hall of government house, Makurdi.

Ortom said, “If you dismiss us and say you do not need us, I believe that will be dangerous. I want the party to address the injustices so that as we move into the elections, we will work together and we will have no crisis.”

“There is injustice that has been meted to my friend Wike, because he stood for the party and supported it to the end.

“The leadership of the party should do the needful to resolve the problem and not to shove people around as though they are not relevant. Everyone is relevant and one vote can make one fail at the elections.

“The leadership at the national level should do more. Politics is interest and what is the interest if not our state and our people. What do I tell my people in Benue?”

Ortom added that the “National PDP failed to use its internal mechanism to resolve crisis rocking the party.”
